Meet Julie Newton, the sweetest girl around. Not only does she provide an amazing customer service experience in the store, she is wildly talented at everything she does. Did you know that she is fluent in French? And that she spent last summer working in the same embroidery studio that is responsible for Chanel and Dior Couture? And that she can paint? And cook? And decorate beautiful cakes? She's honestly just the coolest, come on in and see for yourself.
What is your daily beauty routine?
In the mornings I keep it very simple, I put on my Kiehl’s moisturizer and my Kypris Antioxidant Dew, which is my favourite thing ever. At night time I cleanse my face twice with Joelle Ciocco’s all in one cleanser, followed by more antioxidant dew and moisturizer. And castor oil for my lashes and brows to grow them out! [India's note: Julie seriously swears by castor oil for growing lashes and brows and she is totally right, this works)
What is your signature look?
I like to keep things pretty natural, love me some nice fresh skin, mascara, and my favourite ysl rouge couture #9 lipstick that I never leave the house without.
What's your favourite product at the store?
Kypris Antioxidant Dew! I fell in love with it from the very first day I started using it. It keeps my skin glowy and moisturized while also keeping my breakouts at bay. Honestly I don’t really know what I was doing before Kypris (also can we talk about how stunning their packaging is).
What is your most-played song on iTunes right now?
"If I had a million dollars" by Barenaked Ladies [India's note: Julie, never change, this is the best]. It’s been the most played song on my iTunes since grade three, my dad and I like to jam to it in the car. And in a lil bit of a change of pace, "Nuthin but a G thang" by Dr. Dre is my number two.
What are your favourite places to eat in Vancouver?
I absolutely love to cook so I don’t go out to eat all that often but some favourite restaurants are East is east (their roti rolls and tabouli are my go to's), Aphrodite’s has my favourite bread so I can often be found there eating bread, Heirloom Vegetarian and Rangoli (everyone needs to try their samosas they are to die for!). Also Sun Sushi which is right by my house and is my weekly sushi watering hole.
What's your favourite instagram account?
I couldn’t narrow it down to one so my three favourite accounts are:
@yumikohiguchi because hand embroiders like no other
@Ineslongevial for her line drawings..
@floretflower, the most beautiful flower account I have ever seen and because one day I would like to live on a flower farm like the one they have.
